Chicago! Day 1

Here we have the entrance to the exhibit hall on Friday.

Greyhound Leader and I spent the day walking the floor, buying comic booky stuff and talking to the artists and writers hanging out in Artist's Alley. But the big part of the day was costume watch. There was also the keeping of eyes peeled for people with awesome (and not so awesome) costumes as we then ran around trying to get pictures of them.

Here are some of Friday's highlights...

A couple of teenagers dressed as the Joker and Harley Quinn -- really awesome costumes.

A different version of Harley Quinn -- this one from the videogame Batman: Arkham Asylum. She's joined by DC's mistress of magic Zatanna.

A classic, Silver Age version of that perennial thorn in Superman's side, the imp from the Fifth Dimention Mister Mxyzptlk.

This fellow was obviously inspired by the character of Rorschach from Alan Moore's seminal comic book maxi-series Watchmen

The Marvel comic book hero Moon Knight... and a really good costume as well.

The Golden Age version of DC's pulp-inspired superhero Sandman.

And here's an odd combination -- Shredder, the villain from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ash (complete with "boom stick") from the Evil Dead movies

And finally, the sometimes villain, sometimes quasi-good guy Knockout

Stay tuned for Saturday's pic fest!
